    be quiet! Dark Rock Slim

    And yet all of the Noctua fans in this review are louder than be quiet, so I'm still don't get what you are trying to say here.

    be quiet! Dark Rock Slim

    What? Do you even see any fans under 30Db in those charts? Even at ~350RPM none of them are below 31.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    Devs get jack shit from that bigger cut, it's the publishers who are pocketing the extra cash. That's why publishers are pushing for Epic exclusivity and are the ones making the deals even days before the game is supposed to be released on Steam and the devs don't even know about them doing it.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Says They'd Stop Hunting for Exclusives if Steam Matched Epic Games Store in Comission Rates

    As a European I don't see any lower prices on Epic, I see the opposite in fact, as Epic does not allow third party game stores to sell Epic keys, in other words, Epic hates competition. As for the 70/30 Steam cut, the argument is pure bullshit as you can clearly see when looking at the Steam...

    RTX and DLSS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    Not even close to the visual difference compared to the Metro Exodus implementation. Just shows you that Tomb Raider devs did a lot better job with traditional baked lighting.

    Post your Cinebench R20 Score

    My silicon lottery losing 4.2GHz 4770K doing work, lol. Cooled with Dark Rock Pro 2.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 Pricing and Availability Revealed

    Or you could get a normal 56 with 3 games instead for the same price: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/sapphire-radeon-rx-vega-56-pulse-8gb-hbm2-pci-express-graphics-card-11276-02-40g-gx-38f-sp.html

    MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X 6 GB

    50C idle with fans off is still too high. My 970 Stix also turns off the fans on idle but sits at ~36-38C and it is a higher TDP card.

    Tight Squeeze Below $350 as Price of GTX 1660 Ti Revealed

    Too expensive especially when you take DMC5 and RE2 into account which come with AMD's cards.

    Metro Exodus Benchmark Performance, RTX & DLSS

    Damn, ray traced lighting is such a better use of the tech than the reflections in BFV. The game looks great, only issue being that it should have a couple more bounces for interiors as these look darker than they should now. DLSS is a joke as expected. No idea why tech sites/youtubers keep...

    UK's Allocation of Radeon VII a Grand Total of 100-200 at Launch

    I would be temped to get it just for the games bundled with it, but the price is way over what I would be willing to pay for a GPU and that TDP is a no no. Will have to wait for Navi to see what to get.

    MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z 11 GB

    Fact is that there are no GPUs cheaper than FE at $1200 when nvidia promissed that 2080Tis will start at $1000 and nvidia never specified that the price point does not include non reference models. BTW, do reference models of the RTX cards exist? I don't think so, as the only stock nvidia...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z 11 GB

    And yet the cheapest non FE cards are over $1250.

    MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z 11 GB

    So much for $1000 non FE 2080Tis.

    Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 AMP 6 GB

    "Only small price increase over Founders Edition " - why is that a positive when FE should be the most expensive card? I any case, what is the point of 2070 now? As I see it, when looking at the performance of RTX lineup, 2080 Ti should be the 2080 at $750-800, 2080 the 2070 at $550-600 and...
